A RIP THROUGH TIME

"If one could know both the position and vector of every particle in the universe, it would be possible not only to predict the future, but to completely retrodict the past – and, my friends, that day is soon upon us.”

Dr. Robert Berlin
MIT Commencement, 2342

Very mysterious...

I think I might have an idea of what this is all about.

Let us hope that this day isn't upon us.

I highly doubt that day will be upon us. If predictions are anything to go by then we should be travelling around in flying cars. The statement brought to mind the recent statement by Stephen Hawking. "Aliens do exist and they travel in huge spaceships." Or similar words. Hmmm, me thinks he's seen too many sci-fi films. :-)

Or am I totally barking up the wrong tree and you're getting at something else? Happy week!

Dave, We still have three hundred and thirty two years until Dr. Berlin's claim... And I hadn't seen the Hawking quote. Ha. What are those nurses feeding him?

That's a scary thought!

David Cranmer said...

It is a terrifying thought but luckily Simon Rip is on the way.

Goodness! I hope that's not true...

Alyssa, not until 2342. We're ok for now.
